Exciting things have been happening here at Music Dealers lately. Over the past several months, our tech department has been brewing up something special for our artists, and last week, it was officially released. We bring to you, the brand spanking new Music Dealers Player widget!
What is it?
The Music Dealers Player is a widget that you can add to your site and it will play the songs that you have been added to your Music Dealers profile. The player allows people to stream your music, similar to Soundcloud, but it links straight back to your artist profile, creating an easy way for potential clients to license your music. Just think of it as a music player with a built in personal licensing department right on your website!
So, what’s the big deal?
Oh, did we forget to mention that it’s free? Not only is it free, it allows you to highlight the fact that your music is licensable and will drive potential clients to your artist profile on musicdealers.com. On top of all that, the widget will even play songs that we haven’t reviewed yet! That means that if someone wants to license a song of yours that has not been reviewed, we will speed up the process and make that song available for them! How does that sound?
But I’m not tech savvy! How will I ever be able to install it?
Lucky for you, all you have to know how to do is copy and paste. We’ll handle the hard part for you. To install the widget on your site, just copy one line of code from MusicDealers.com, paste it into your website, and it will magically appear. We will handle the delivery aspect, so all you need to know is that whatever songs are on your Music Dealers profile, are the songs that will play on the widget. It’s as easy as that!
What’s next for the Music Dealers Player?
We’re so glad you asked! Since our artists are always top of mind, we want to continue making things better for you. That’s why you should be on the lookout for some exciting new updates in the works for the widget. In the near future, more info from your profile will be added to the player. This info will not duplicate what is already on your profile and will provide you with another tool to help pitch yourself to potential clients. We are also working on giving you a variety of templates that you can choose from to better fit your site. Perhaps the most exciting of all though, is an update to the widget that will allow people to license your music directly from your website. Cool, huh?
Still not convinced? Need we remind you that the Music Dealers Player is not only a quality, free music player for your website, but it is also a tool that allows you to generate more revenue. What more could you ask for?
With such a useful tool, we’re excited to see where it goes and what you, our artist community, do with it!
